Who would win in a no-holds-barred battle to the death? Koh the Face Stealer or Pennywise the Clown? In honour of the inaugural Blogger Book Fair (All’s Fair in Blogs and More!), they go head-to-head in the TOURNAMENT OF MONSTERS!
Koh the Face Stealer (Avatar: The Last Airbender): With his giant sinuous multi-legged carapace, changeable facial orifice and seductively smooth voice, cave-dwelling Koh is the ultimate phallic-insect nightmare. Never mind that he’s on a Nickelodeon kids’ show—that just makes him extra creepy. Deliberately provocative and unnerving, Koh has only one goal: to STEAL YOUR FACE. Defended by Vicki Essex, author of My Son’s Hero
Pennywise (Stephen King’s It): Listen, if a monster needs to steal someone else’s face, he has some serious insecurity issues. (And there are way cooler things to steal: souls, lives, kids, etc.) Pennywise uses his painted face to lure you into sewers before he rips your arm off. Try putting that on Nickleodeon. Defended by Wynne Channing, author of What Kills Me
